"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

It's making me not want to get up and go to work. Actually, I'm like that every day.
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:21am Nathan:

My external sound card has gone into ring modulator mode. It sounds as if there is a decay on everything played. I've been listening to WFMU for the last 2 hours this way because I can't be bothered to reboot. It's kind've nice.
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:23am eric:

Anyone catch han bennink on fresh air yesterday?

We're here but just bashful this morning
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:24am Nathan:

Hahaha! It's all a bit Aphex Twin/ Cylon (80s battlestar galactica).
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:25am northguineahills:

Crackers, I only caught Give the Drummer Some Han Bennink tribute.
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:28am George of Troy:

  Wed. 4/18/12 8:31am ERD:

JA--if you get a chance, what was that Kondo track from? I stepped out apparently before you listed it. Great stuff as always
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:33am eric:

No cheese this time. Terry and her producer did find some misc. office supplies for him to play, though.
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:37am northguineahills:

I love the band's version. Too bad about Levon Helm.
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:40am eric:

There are not enough songs written from the perspective of a dead person.
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:43am ERD:

Thanks!!
  Wed. 4/18/12 8:49am maja:
